Volunteers to plant 10,000 trees

Postojna, 9 April - About 100 volunteers plan to plant 10,000 spruce and beech seedlings on Saturday around Prestranek, an area in southwestern Slovenia badly hit by the early-2014 ice storm.

The reforestation initiative is a joint effort by the Slovenian Forest Agency and the Slovenske železnice rail operator to help curb the damage done by the ice storm.

The ice storm devastated about half a million hectares of Slovenian forests and battered the railway line between Ljubljana and the port of Koper.

Employees and partners of the rail operator will also be taking part in the reforestation initiative.
